Cert: TBC Year: 2019 Length: 97 mins
As ALS, a disease that causes the death of the neurons responsible for voluntary movements, starts to take hold of Lily's (Susan Sarandon) body, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Days before her scheduled demise, she invites her closest friends and family over to celebrate one last time. All is going well until her daughters, Jennifer (Kate Winslet) and Anna (Mia Wasikowska), arrive. Both are struggling with personal issues, and with the decision of their mother to take her own life.

Blackbird remains an undeniable sledgehammer to the emotions, one that walks a very fine line between heartache and Hallmark, but Susan Sarandon is gently astonishing, and by the time the sun sets on the film you'll be watching it though a veil of tears.
It may be the most beautifully complete film you will see all year. Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
